In this section, the user will find over 100 indicators related to children and youth in Puerto Rico, and their families, considering the following areas: Economy, Education, Family, Health and Safety.

These indicators give us a deeper understanding of family situations observed in both, the Child & Youth Well-Being Index of Puerto Rico and the Municipal Child & Youth Well-Being Index.

The data in this section are for Puerto Rico and its 78 municipalities; it also offers a comparative tool between municipalities, with data and positions.

Nota: Position number 1 represents the municipality with the highest percentage in each indicator, or the worst condition. Municipalities with the same value are classified in the same position, so it’s possible that the positions don’t necessarily reach 78.

Economy

Children and young people have a safe and comfortable place to live, nutritious food and social recreational opportunities. Young people, especially the most vulnerable ones, have access to opportunities for decent work, to obtain income security, a transition to the employment world, alleviate poverty and facilitate growth and future opportunities.
